Come on guys... Panama is not in South America... it is the connection between the Americas. Very special location BTW.
Nonetheless... If it is up to me they can post pictures here anytime... they must have some sort of southern influence, lol.
Be welcome Panama.

Yes, totally agree... Panama City is perfectly a South American city.

In Panama we are taught that there is only one continent, the Americas. That said, Panama's history is almost wholly South American. From 1525–1549 Panama was governed from Lima and from 1550–1903 Panama was governed from Bogota. 400 years as South American land! Culturally, Panama is not Central American. It is closest to the cultures of Caribbean Colombia and Venezuela than to the more indigenous mountain peoples of Northern Central America (with Aztec and Maya roots). Our national traditional music is based on Cumbia, which descended in both Panama and Colombia (the other music is reggaeton which was created by Panamanians from Jamaican reggae). Our dress is based on Colombian dress. We have large Afro Caribbean populations like Colombia and Venezuela. Panama's indigenous peoples are also the Guaymi and Ngobe Bugle who come from the Chibchan family (see map below), which began in Northern Colombia. Culturally we are closest to Northern South America, Socially we are closest to Caribbean South America, Politically we were South American for 400 years!



The first major trail in the country was the Camino de Cruces which linked the Pacific and Atlantic. Portobelo and Panama City grew from this trail sending Bolivian and Peruvian gold to Seville. Economically, Panama first grew because of South American commodity exports from Lima. Again, South American! Nowhere in Panamanian history has the country ever shown as much development towards North America. But we are grouped with North America because we are a small country that for years was seen as a banana republic. So we were grouped in with Guatemala, Nicaragua, etc. That said, Panama has little interaction with any Central American nation outside of Costa Rica. We trade more with South Korea than with Mexico! So it makes no sense to group us with countries that we have no historical, cultural, social or economic links to! Panama should be a South American nation imo.


Simon Bolivar even tried to unite South America in the Congress of Panama (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congreso_de_Panam%C3%A1)

And here's an old map of South America. Notice that Panama was a member.

Although technically you can drive from Colombia to Panama, I know by family and friends that people don't do it because of dangerous paramilitary forces operating in the area that tend to kidnap or kill intruders. Normal people usually goes from one country to another by boat, in a trip that is very dangerous if there's bad weather.

I am Panamanian and have never heard of this road you are talking about. Could you tell us where is this road located at? Probably you meant to say YOU CANNOT DRIVE from Colombia to Panama because Panamanians dont want to open this road for obvious reasons.

I like the order of the Santiago de Chile skyline, but it seems like every pic of it are different shots and angles of Costanera Center and Titanium. Needs more variety.
